Park & Ride
Hop in and ride - it's as simple as that! Guests at Kruger now have the opportunity to make use of the "Park and Ride Scheme" where you can get to see the Big 5 and contribute to local empowerment.
The "Community Drive Project" is a joint venture between SANParks and Vuswa Fleet Services. It is an initiative to empower people on the periphery of the Park.
- Park & Ride currently operates from Numbi, Phabeni and Kruger gates.
- There are 4 vehicles for the southern side of the Park.
- The duration of drive is 4 hours:-
- 1st drive: starting at 07:00 and ending at 11:00 from each gate.
- 2nd drive: starting at 14:00 and ends at 18:00 from affected gate (subject to season gate closure times)
- Drives to start 30 minutes earlier in winter and ends 30 minutes earlier than the proposed time.
